'll push as hard as we can. martha: mark these send, former speechwriter to president george w. bush. alcan combs -- alan colmes, host of the "alan colmes radio show". good morning. big day in america. great to have you both with us. you heard david plouffe's remarks. you worked for president george w. bush. is there common ground that needs to be sought on this issue in this country, do you think? >> i think there can be. look, i have two daughters who are the exact same age as the kids who died in newtown. there are a lot of things the republicans can support like the president announced. better gun owner and safety education and mental health support and helping develop emergency responses and the rest but when the president goes to gun control i think the public support and bipartisan support drops dramatically. there is a fox news poll shows only 22% of americans believe more gun control would have actually stopped an incident in newtown where as 71% think the criminals will get guns anyway. the 71% are right. there sim peer call evidence that shows it. i think it is a mistake to go af
donors as well. former presidents jimmy carter, bill clinton, neither of the bushes coming. george h.w. bush still recovering from illness. you can see them setting up. putting name tags on the chairs. so everyone knows where to sit and laying out the official inauguration ceremony program. a lovely, lovely piece of paper right here. we got one ourselves. lays out the ceremonies that will be happening today in about six hours from now. zoraida. >> all right. thank you very much, john. president obama better get all of his partying done tonight. his second term is in full effect already and that means the potential for great achievements, but if history is any indicator, the second term is where things can get messy. it's not like he wasn't warned. >> i'm more than familiar with the literature about presidential overreach in second terms. >> president barack obama's victory dance is about to become a dance against destiny. >> if we look back, some really great examples of really big things being done in second terms. but recent history, there is the potential for real disaster. >> i did
. is that the case? karl rove, former senior advisor to president george w. bush and a fox news contributor and good morning to you, karl. i see you stayed far away from washington, d.c. today, back there in austin, texas. what do you think that number, 55%, reflects based on what we've watched over the past two months? >> well, it reflects people paying attention to what's been going on. the president has been far more confrontational after the election. in fact, excuse me, "new york times" article yesterday interviewing a bunch of his friends where one of the takeaways from his friends and aides, he would be quote, more bloody-minded about republicans. recent stories in both the post and "l.a. times" and "new york times" where his aids felt aides felt he was liberated in his section term. liberated from what? take on political opposition and focus on defeating the republicans in the fourth fourth election. most presidents say they're liberated. i'm never on the ballot again. i can work with people to bring together big purposes. the president has much smaller objective. let me beat use my power to
, jimmy carter, no bushes, however. george h.w. bush recuperating from illness and george w. bush had to send his regrets. look at the blue carpet. yesterday they had vacuums in here cleaning up and the glass you can see right there, just minutes, wiping it clean to make everything look absolutely perfect for the ceremonies again. the president will take the oath for the second time in two days at 11:30 this morning. soledad. >> john berman, thank you. let's get to john king. hey, john. >> soledad, hello to you. i don't think it's so chilly. i'm with you on the weather front. a beautiful spring day in washington. let's get to the team joining us on beach day in washington. we have the former obama deputy press secretary, margaret hoover, and brian liza for "the new yorker" and ron brownstein from "the national journal." we're going to head straight up to john borrasso, a conservative, and let's start with this morning. a new beginning for the president. is this a new beginning for the republican party. your leader, famously, infamous, started the first obama term saying the number one
in the senate, paul ripe in the house, and maybe we can have like george w. bush, a republin vision that had legal status and maybe even citizenship for those in this country illegally, ballpark number about 10 million. would a tea party member like you support that? in the past, you've called that amnesty. >> that would be real hard for me, and i defined amnesty, and not many have because they want the broader definition when it's convenient. to grant amnesty is to pardon immigration law breakers and reward them with the objective of their crime. if that's what this bill does, it would fit the definition of amnesty. >> could your speaker survive if he allowed that bill to come to the floor of the house of representatives? >> i think we'd want to look at the language on that. john boehner's tone and his body language and everything i heard him say at the retreat in williamsburg, he and our leadership team was all about how we pull our conference together and work together. i don't think you'll see another bill come to the floor that's got that large a number of democrat votes we've seen in t
ladies? >> i think it's very similar what presidents recently have experienced. george w. bush came hoping to change the environment. bill clinton came thinking he could change it. the last person who began to sense there were greater possibilities was reagan, that was almost a different political age. it was harder to govern then. >> you also think about, had the clintons and how bill clinton -- he seemed to revel in politics, the reaching out to people. in the article, i found it fascinating that the obamas haven't had bill and hillary clinton over for dinner. i -- i mean, she's -- all the things that bill clinton did during the campaign, all the work that hillary clinton's done, they've never had a dinner at the white house with them? >> i think this is something outsiders find difficult and surprising. the obamas can be vivacious, charming they have great public personalities. what people in washington see -- but i think people all over the country don't necessarily see it, there's an intro version there, a self-protectedness. the obamas said both when the president became famou
president, and george w. bush was a guy who thought deeply about imuation reform, poverty and trying to craft a middle class agenda for the gop. george w. bush is a figure that many republicans have been running away from. so tell me, do you think republicans were too quick to abandon george w. bush? >> i'm sorry, what? i was tweeting. i'm sorry. [laughter] um, well, yes and no. i think, obviously, politically republicans distanced themselves from george w. bush because it was politic thing to do. numbers don't lie. he became very unpopular. parties tend not to embrace figures and politicians who become unpopular. my view is that a lot of the distress over bush's domestic agenda from which republicans fled beginning really in 2005 had, it was a, it was an ancillary result of the failure to secure victory in iraq early and to have a favorable reckoning -- >> so iraq sank what might have been a successful domestic policy agenda? >> right. well, what i mean is that i think the entire country stopped listening to president bush on what would be efficacious for the country when it lost fa
to elbow their way to the front. for george h.w. bush that's a great example. another great example, william f. buckley. he had liberal friends. in fact, he campaigned for liberals that were his friends even though he knew it upset some on the conservative side. for william f. buckley, it wasn't a blood sport. >> to end this block, to counter it just a bit, and i'm sorry but it has the added value of being true, the president does need to reach out.agree. but he has, and it hasn't worked. so when he does it again, the republicans actually need to show up. >> you just quoted henry kissinger. there is hope. >> that's like me going jogging for ten minutes and saying afterwards, you know what i didn't lose 30 pounds. no i'm dead serious. they have stuck their toe in the water. that is it. when you still have democrats, democratic senators that run the senate andrea mitchell complaining that they've never been to camp david, the president doesn't call them they don't go over to the white house, then it's time for him to be more aggressive about this. >> two points quic
. >> you took photos of george w6789 bush that you see as book ends, an intense bush family during the disputed election with al gore, and then at the end, president bush leaving the white house? >> yeah, the first one was backstage election night in austin, texas. al gore had already conceded the election, but five minutes after that photo was taken, he called back and took it back which led us to that whole hanging chads scenario. but the final picture. the one that was taken four years ago today is george w. bush, last day as president walking out of the white house to the right is president-elect obama and what struck me about that moment was that bush never looked back, it's like, he threw the keys to the place over to obama and that was it. to me, it's a powerful moment. and also, again, goes to the transition of power of the united states. we have one party going to the next. it's peaceful, you and i have both been in places where the transitions are more difficult. >> that's for sure. thank you for taking the time to talk about these images. thank you so much. in the last f
was tweeting. yes and no. politically, republicans distance themselves from george w. bush because it was the thing to do. numbers do not lie. he became very unpopular. parties do not have to embrace figures and politicians to become unpopular. my view is that a lot of distress over bush's domestic agenda from which they fled in 2005. it had been an ancillary result of failure to defend iraq and have a favorable recognition. >> what might have been a successful policy agenda? >> i think the entire country stopped listening to president bush which would be good for the country when it lost faith that he was managing the war effectively. he found it more difficult to get hearings on some of the issues. a lot of people on the right to it came at bush on a lot of these domestic issues. they were feeling extremely distressed about what was going on in the war and did not want to turn on the war. we have troops in the field. this seems like a noble endeavor. they were angry at him for throwing them on the defensive for the prosecution of the war. as a result of the republican party getti

clinton will be here today but there will be no former bush presidents. of course george h.w. bush is recovering from being ill. he's been in the hospital for quite some time. george w. bush decided to stay back in texas, too, although he did send his regrets. the leadership in congress, the joint chiefs. there is one member of the cabinet who will not be here. we don't know who it is yet but it's a so-called designated survivor, the person that stays behind just in case the unimaginable happens. it was then defense secretary robert gates four years ago. we're waiting to see who it is this time around. this is where all the big people will be sitting. they'll file in sometime a little over 9:00 a.m. zoraida? >> i love the view, john. i think you may have the best seat in the house right now. >> not bad. >> thank you very much. so the washington who's who will no doubt be in full party mode tonight with inaugural events planned around the city, the commander in chief's ball and the inaugural ball will bring out big names like katy perry, brad paisley, stevie wonder and alicia keys.

george w. bush mitt romney's healthcare provider. on and on. so when i say, and yet for all of these things that he has done, he has copied all of these big ideas from republicans. again, going all the way back and then to nixon and yet their response is, he is just a fascist, a socialist. really? what were nixon and reagan and george w. bush for god's sake? they completely shunned their own. they ignored their own history >> bill: they don't recognize their own ideas. right? when they are staring them in the face. >> i think most people can recognize the republican party of today is not the republican party of 20, 30 years ago. most people who look at this independently can see that. but i think the bigger question is: is there ever going to be anything that's a wake-up call for them? what would the wake-up call be that they say, okay. we really need to change here? >> i think the wake-up call if you delve into these poll numbers from these election night numbers we were just talking about this, you know, off there, they lost the hispanic vo

but no one will dispute the fact that george w. bush was aiming for the bleachers with his second inaugural with what he called his freedom speech which is -- in terms of projecting american force, moral and military around the world in the wake of 9/11 and the doctrine of preemptive military action. >> you knows the reference to lincoln, we talk about being in a divided america now. in many ways we are politically. but you think about lincoln and that inauguration, both of his, it was a different level. >> different level all together. he is involved in the conflict where half a million people would be killed, the end of channeled slavery. a lot is at stake. we're fighting now but not anywhere like that, thank god. >> we're about to see the introduction of the first lady of the united states, michelle obama. as you watched her grow in this role the last four years, what do you think? >> well she has done -- she is a, the most popular person in america just about. she has firmed up the sense of this family as a very responsible family that people can relate to, which was not always going to

party over the past four years since george w. bush left town is roger els. he's run the party, he's run the conservative movement. when roger els decides she's not worth the trouble, then that means that conservatism's moving in a new direction. i talked about what happened this weekend at "the national review" institute's talk. i was really surprised. really surprised by what i heard. and heartened, whether it was bill kristol or john hatoritz. also scott walker who is doing really well up in wisconsin. and all the republicans got up there, and they were saying the same thing. we've got to stop being the stupid party. we've been saying here for six months, we have got to -- and john, i thought, had one of the best points, that we have stifled debate. the conservative movement has stifled debate. and if you go out and you dare to stand out in a crowd, whether it's on taxes or regulations or in the past on immigration, you were completely shunned from the party. finally there's an understanding we've got to grow the party. what we've been saying for quite frankly for years and getting at
. >> just lie and say yes. >> michael dukakis did not go to the swearing in of george h.w. bush, he watched on tv and ate a tuna sandwich. >> god love him. a lot of times the losing candidate is a senator or congressman any way and has to be there anyway. >> stephanie: right. but he was too busy pumping gas and looking like a smelly hobo. >> and trying to stay out of ann's way. i don't think she had a good day yesterday. >> stephanie: yeah i speculate she will never have sex with him again. he said we don't want to put her out there a lot. we don't want people to get sick of her. trust me a little goes a long way with this bitch. what? what did i say? >> and millions of americans gathering around their tv rooting against a horse. >> stephanie: he said he didn't get why he had to take that extra step and say i'm not going to watch. it is just another gaffe. and rachel maddow said him putting the word out that he wouldn't attend made himself the story. >> i think the entire convention lacked of mittness. >> stephanie: right. you wanted to see if you could detect an actual expres
: many people are saying that this president could use george w. bush on the issue of immigration because he is that as a key domestic agenda item on for his second term and he felt pretty good president bush help him on immigration with republicans? pick it'm sure he could is a question of whether he wants to play that role. there are plenty of other surrogates who could play this role, and the most important one is marco rubio, who was not only of hispanic origin, but also younger and can appeal to this whole dreamers movement, and he is right here in washington serving in congress and drafting legislation and working on a bipartisan basis. there is also a large number of democrats and republicans who, while we don't hear about it, are working behind the scenes, like lindsey graham and charles schumer, on putting some kind of legislation out there. certainly bush, he decided to step forward, could play a constructive role. it is not like he is going to let democrats just because he decided to put himself out there on the issue. it would only help in terms of bringing republicans on boar
two living presidents george h.w. bush who was just released from the hospital and is who is now recovering, and george w. bush who sends his regrets. >> so as it happens because of the illness of the elder mr. bush, there will be only democratic presidents in attendance today. very, very unusual circumstance. the headline of the hour, the news broke moments ago by bob schieffer is that the republican leadership at this moment is in the white house having coffee with the president. perhaps a hopeful sign that agreements might come with the new year. >>> here's what's coming up the rest of this inauguration day. at 10:40, the president and mrs. obama leave the white house for the capital. the inaugural ceremonies begin at 11:30 and include the ceremonial swearing-in of vice president biden. then at 11:55, president obama will be sworn in by chief justice john roberts. and at noon, the president will deliver his inaugural address. that will be followed by lunch at the capital. then around 2:30, the president leads a procession back to the white house where he and the first lady wil
here obviously. president george w. bush at 171, we do not have numbers on h.w.bush. what amy noted, the way that the president handled these particular appointments was a bit unprecedented. is it reasonable to suspect that this is not going to be the end of this the white house will not say, you have us, we will change our ways? >> sure, we need to balance what she was saying by suggesting that maybe the senate has been overreaching a little bit. if you go back and read the explanation, the federalist papers, it is the president who is supposed on object the controlling factor who is appointed in his administration. they are not to block the appointments through ideological reasons. >> this federal appeals court says that the senate has the privilege to advise and consent. i used to work for the senate majority leader i remember when the shoe was on the other foot. and senate democrats were blocking it, the federal appeals court said that the white house cannot look at the senate floor and say, we do not see business going on here and we will claim that you are in recess and make a
. george w. bush got 62 million votes in the 2004 election and conservatives said he had a mandate. barack obama got 62 million votes in the two -- 2012 election, and conservatives started a secessionist movement. but the obama campaign took it to them and made a difference in the end. they helped create a new electorate, a coalition of concerned and they turned it out on election day. our two political parties are separate and not equal. the percentage of republicans who are white has remained fairly steady since 2000 at about 87%. the percentage of democrats who are white in contrast has dropped from 64% in 2000 to 55% now. independents have gone from 79% to 67% white since 2000. the depth of republican dependence on white voters explains a lot about the recent election. not least about its outcome. republican efforts to suppress minority voters back fired big time. [applause] in florida alone, 266,000 more hispanics voted than in 2008. similarly in ohio, 209,000 more blacks voted than in 2008. overall, while romney received 59% of the white vote, all hot -- obama -- omaha? obama got 93%

that history has not been kind to presidential incumbents. >> second terms have been tough. george w. bush left with the economy melting down and the lowest approval ratings practically in history for a president. bill clinton was impeached. richard nixon resigned his office. >> reporter: american university historian dr. allan lichtman says president obama must use the power of the people to sway congress and it appears that will be part of the inaugural address. >> he's going to talk about our political system doesn't require to us resolve all our disputes or political difference, but it does require us to seek chop ground when it can and should exist. -- common ground when it can and should exist. he's going to make that point very strongly. >> reporter: a new public opinion group will be made for public action. >> we want to make that there is people out there pushing for action. >> reporter: tax reform, entitlement, jobs and spending among the top issues for americans. gun control, climate change and international affairs are also on the agenda. you really don't have four years now. it
